Don't know whether you guys have the concept of recklessness in your law, you probably do 'cos your laws originated in our common law.
Anyway, you can do an act intentionally knowing its likely outcome and you can do an act recklessly - ie with no regard to the likely outcome.
The jury then has to decide whether a reasonable person should have foreseen the actual outcome; if so, the reckless behaviour is culpable.
In my mind, Trump was at best reckless and at worst intentional in his behaviour. Both culpable in law.

You're not interested in intelligent debate or establishing facts, you just want to spread your faeces around as far and wide as you can then run off laughing.
What is it that you think you are doing marc?

Re: It Has Started
If he attacks any NATO country he's dead, we just have to hope that he's still basically sane and cares.

Re: Defining Socialism. Again.
It also missed a couple of vital points
1. They're full-blooded democracies
2. The the Nordics are happiest people in the world
If you guys (and us that follow some of your worst traits) want to really 'pursue happiness' forget your American Dreams of religious fundamentalism, right wing politics and unregulated capitalism and get some social justice.
